Migration 8


Piece description from the artist

Planets are not eternal, they're born, they live they die.
A titanic process taking place over time spans far to great for a single person to observe.
Even today, we can see signs of our world's inevitable demise if you know where to look. Sooner or perhaps much later our world, the only home we have ever known will die in a inferno of solar fire.
If humanity ever reaches out beyond our star to colonise new worlds, we will have to come to terms with the fact that everything is temporary in the grand scheme of the universe.
What was a habitable one moment, will be inhospitable the next.
How will we adapt to this mobile lifestyle? Will we pack up our cities onto generation ships and move our civilisation to the stars? Could our descendants live under domes sailing through the void?

About Aaron Rolfe

Hackney, London, United Kingdom

Aaron Rolfe, a prolific artist & versatile creative.
Born & raised in the south of England Aaron showed a keen interest in the arts from a young age and began drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil to paper, spending his youth depicting surreal scenes from worlds beyond our own. He found it was the best way he could communicate with the world.
Growing up near the Jurassic coast Aaron was inspired by the stunning natural formations and the storied past they contained, as well as humanity’s march of progress as the new millennium dawned.
After discovering Humanism in his formative years he decided to make the advancement of mankind, and our place in the vast cosmos a central theme in his work. He hoped to depict what we are capable of when working together toward a better future.
After finishing his school career, he decided to hone his creative skills and discover what industry he fit into by enrolling at The Arts University Bournemouth working towards a diploma in the arts. After graduating he enrolled again at the Arts University Bournemouth studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Cinematography and film production.
In 2020 Aaron decided to move to London, the beating heart of England's creative worlds, pursuing a career as a freelance Illustrator and concept artist for film & television.
To date, Aaron has found moderate success creating artwork for Science fiction publications in the United States and England, as well as crafting concept art for various independent film projects from around the globe.
